3 Benefits of Using Furniture Ramps for Your Dog | Royal Ramps Giveaway

This post is sponsored by Royal Ramps. Pawsitively Pets only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. 

As a veterinary technician, I've seen many dogs injure themselves on one of the most common household items - furniture. Furniture related injuries are especially common in small breed dogs, but can happen to any size, age, or breed of dog.

The best way to prevent these injuries and help our furry canine friends get around easier is by using furniture ramps or stairs, like Royal Ramps.

How can your dog benefit from using furniture ramps? Take a look.

Prevent Furniture Related Injuries


By jumping on and off of furniture, many dogs succumb themselves to injury. While it seems like such a simple task, it truly does happen all the time. The most common types of injuries that I've personally seen from dogs jumping on and off of furniture include neck, back, and wrist injuries.

By placing a furniture ramp or stairs near your couch or bed, you could be preventing an unwanted trip to the vet's office. 

Furniture Ramps Are Good for Arthritic Dogs


Senior dogs with arthritis may have a harder time climbing on and off the furniture. Give them a helping paw by placing a furniture ramp near the couch for easier access. 

Perfect for Small Dogs


If you have a tall bed and a small dog, they may not be able to physically jump up onto the bed. Rather than picking them up and putting them down whenever they beckon to you, a dog ramp can make it easy for them to come and go as they please.

  2. Hi Ann,

    I'm so happy to read about these ramps. Having two senior dogs, I'm always looking for safer ways for them to maneuver around the house. Both use a ramp to get into my truck. It's too much pressure for them to jump up and down. I'm trying to prolong their joints as much as possible, plus Titan has chronic issues anyway. In the home, I do have a step for them to get onto my couch and one at the bottom of my bed. However, that one is also Titan's bed. I would love to try out these ramps so thanks for the opportunity. Great review!

  6. we have a ramp but it attaches underneath the cushion, so little bailey has to jump from the ramp to the sofa. most of the time i don't even use it because that little jump is still too high for her. the royal ramp, being 21" tall, would solve this problem.
    wags, bailey unleashed

  7. A ramp for a small dog is a great idea. The first night I had Millie home, she somehow managed to climb almost 4 feet onto my bed... which was impressive for a 4-pound puppy! I was scared to NOT let her sleep in the bed in case she hurt herself climbing up again, so the next morning, stairs were implemented. The bed has since been lowered for Millie's convenience. (My dog isn't spoiled at all....)

  8. My doxie would definitely benefit from this ramp since many of this breed develop IVDD and other back issues.

  9. They look pretty nice. As long as the dog doesn't have issues with balance they are a safe way to get up and down.

  10. This would be great for senior kitties as well as kittens. Could have used this a little while ago with my senior kitty. Now I can use it for the new baby in the house. Thanks for the giveaway.

  11. My little dogs would really love a ramp for our bedroom. I have made some stairs for them to use but it's still hard for them to pull themselves up each step so I just pick them up and take them down. This ramp would work much better and I love that they could be independent :)

  12. These ramps would be helpful for cats too. The cat before us suffered from arthritis in his back and he couldn't jump. The mom bought a ramp like this to help him get up on teh bed.

  13. I have a small Lhasa Apso who struggles a bit with our high bed, so I'm sure she would think she's a queen with this ramp. No more missed jumps that end in embarrassing or sore face plants.

  14. Our Westie is 14 and getting too old to jump onto the furniture -- we have to pick him up and then help him down. This ramp would be great for him.

  15. This would be great for my senior pup that has arthritis.

  16. I have several senior pets who would greatly appreciate a ramp in the house. I like that this one is made from foam and not wood or metal.

  18. We sure could use this with our senior dog,getting up on
    the bed and into the car would be very helpful.

  19. Both my dogs are young, but this would come in handy as they age. Shiloh's six, and it won't be long before he could need this. In the meantime, my 2 year old is very small, and though he can jump up, this would save on his body.

  20. I lost my senior Coonhound girl, Suki, back in April - she was just over 15 years old and could no longer get onto beds or the couch by herself. This would have been perfect for her. I have three other rescued Treeing Walker Coonhounds, all in the 6-8 years old. It won't be long before one of more of them will need a ramp. I'd love to get this now so they can learn to use it before then HAVE to use it.

  21. We have seven rescue dogs, five of them are seniors and one of the seniors is also a tripawd. This ramp would be great for them! They are not crazy about using the plastic steps that we bought for them and won't use them unless we bribe them with cookies! Some of them will not use the steps at all. This ramp looks like the perfect solution for our babies! Thank you!

  22. That royal ramp can sure be a happy addition for everything that would make the senior dogs and little ones go up and down with ease!

  23. Love the idea of a ramp; I'll have to see if I can get one through our co-op. Sydney has an injury and this would help her get on and off the furniture. I'm going to see if my boyfriend can help me make one. Project!!!!

  24. Darn it! I was so hoping I could enter. LOL, even though I'm Canadian I live close enough to the border that I have a US address. We could really use another ramp here at Kol's Notes. Between Kolchak's bad back and Felix's TWO bad knees, I feel like I spend all my life lifting them on and off the bed!

  25. I have 4 small dogs and I always worry about then jumping and hurting their back. This would be perfect!!

  27. These ramps look really nice! It does get harder for pets to jump up onto furniture as they get older. Furniture just keeps getting higher and higher off of the ground too! A ramp like this could really come in handy.

  28. My dog could really use this! He has difficulty jumping on/off his chair.

  29. This would be so helpful for my dog, he has trouble jumping up onto furniture.

  30. This would be really great for our couch or bed to help our dog get up.

  31. i have wooden steps now, but the move, sometimes the girls trip, would love this so the girls can go up the ramp to get on my bed. they sleep with me at night. maybe my oldest gal would even try this ramp.

  32. My senior dog is losing his eye sight. He miscalculates his jumps onto the couch sometimes. A ramp would be easier on him.

  33. Our dog has a bad back and she is not suppose to jump on furniture, um right, Hope to win this to see if it will work. Thanks for the chance.

  34. This is so true! My poor Leela stumbled and hit her chin on the floor which caused her to lose two teeth. I cried and cried and I still nearly break down every time I see those tiny gaps where her teeth used to be!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Love this idea, my dog is not supposed to jump down from furniture, so this would be a big help.

    ReplyDelete
  36. This would be great for Nala and Cody since Nala struggles getting on the bed and Cody has to be picked up.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I like the look of these - thanks for sharing. I've got a friend who could really use this, will forward your post to her.

  38. ellie is too tiny to get up on the bed...we do have stairs but she will only go to the second stair and then wait for me to put her on to the bed! kinda defeats the purpose, but i love her!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Would love this for my dog, it is hard for him to climb up on the bed

    ReplyDelete
  40. What a great idea as I always cringe when Layla jumps off the bed that she is going to hurt herself

    ReplyDelete
  41. These are awesome! We really should get some for Harley who sometimes hesitates jumping on and off of furniture these days.

    ReplyDelete
  42. We've used stairs up to our bed. But stairs are now getting difficult for Cricket since her arthritis is in her back knees. This ramp looks great, but I think it might be too big to fit well in our house.

  44. I have all senior dogs and although I have pet steps, a ramp might work better for some of them. Thanks!

  45. The dog is getting up in age and would make getting into bed easier.

  46. Wow, Royal Ramps has some cool products!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I have 3 small dogs that could all enjoy a ramp. One of mine has IVDD so he is at risk for injuring his back. He would love to win a new ramp!

  48. Our older Kouga has trouble getting in and out of the truck by himself. A ramp will solve this for both of us.
